Sculpture Project Arts Programming Grants
Rapid City, SD
Second deadline: Saturday, June 15
Destination Rapid City and the Rapid City Arts Council are teaming up to launch a locally focused grant-making program in conjunction with The Sculpture Project: Passage of Wind and Water.
Sculpture Project Arts Programming Grants are intended to nurture the arts in downtown Rapid City and will be available four times a year to artists and arts organizations in the Black Hills and Badlands area.
The grants are designed to assist in the development of arts programming that connects the local community to the arts, to Downtown Rapid City and to The Sculpture Project at Main Street Square, "Passage of Wind and Water."
The hope is that the grants stimulate creative new projects and help leverage the rich opportunities presented to our community as home to this large, long-term public art project.
Please contact Anna Huntington, community arts coordinator for The Sculpture Project, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
